5k Jackdaw Social Run

Join a free 5K group run following footpaths and byways in a scenic countryside loop in the Honington area. This is a nice, easy step up for runners used to 5K road runs who’d like to try multi-terrain. It is also a great social running opportunity to  join a small friendly non-competitive group run, led by a qualified guide.

This event welcomes runners of all levels, and the group leader will run at the pace of the slowest runner. For those wishing to go ahead, each runner will be supplied with a route map and a GPX file to be used on your smart watch/phone.
